Author and professional puppeteer Mary Robinette Kowal describes her love of puppetry as an interest in the boundless nature of the medium. She can play any type of character, there are countless ways to present the puppets themselves, and combinations of puppet actors and "fleshies" are ripe for new experiences and metaphors for audiences. She even tells a great story about the unfortunate(?) place her hand ended up while on set for Sesame Street.

Tricia takes a break from cohosting her own inordinately entertaining podcast Nerdette to talk long form about a topic that gets inevitably philosophical. She has adored the idea of exploring time travel since she noticed it popping up in her favorite things to consume (Doctor Who, Harry Potter, etc). We talk some of her new favorite examples (she knows other people are watching Travelers) and spend a lot of time discussing why we as creators and consumers have become even more interested in exploring the idea of going to the past or future in recent years.

In. Out. Repeat. While listening to this great conversation with Nico Carter, the host encourages you to center yourself, breathe, and soft focus on what's around you. Nico starts by elaborating on the lung issues that befell him to make him more aware of his own breath in the first place, then takes MBS on a journey through the awareness that breath has given him in improv (musically, comedically, and where acting and writing are concerned) and day to day life.
